Deirdre Featherstone comes to the world of jewelry with a terrifically discerning eye for both beauty and functionality. As a former antique auctioneer, she appreciates the value and aesthetic of exquisitely beautiful things, but as a motorcycle and classic car enthusiast, she understands that even the most stunning things need to run smoothly and feel right. This dual insight translates into her jewelry in a number of ways.
As the hands, the eye, and the spirit of Featherstone Design, Deirdre has been designing and producing fine jewelry in New York City since 1985. Deirdre stepped from the world of antiques into the world of precious metals and stones bringing with her a love of beautifully crafted objects and the stories those objects have to tell.
The signature of the Featherstone Design collection, however, is its convertibility. Featherstone creations can be worn alone or combined with a multitude of interchangeable enhancements designed in the Studio – in any way the wearer wishes to combine them. The wearer’s ability to take authority of how they want to wear their pieces allows them a more personal interaction with both the jewelry and with the designer. The Featherstone Concept combines the creative forces of the jeweler and the individual client, allowing for constant evolution of timeless jewelry.
The three tenets of Featherstone Design that set Deirdre apart from the rest of the jewelry world are: the proliferation of platinum and beautifully bright gemstones in her line, the engineering that goes into each piece of the Featherstone Design collection, and her total dedication to handmade jewelry.
